What is a Moodboard?

There are many reasons a mood board is beneficial for your kitchen design; for example, creating a mood board is a great way to explore your personal style and learn more about what you like and don't like. By curating a collection of images and elements that reflect your taste, you'll be able to see common threads and define your aesthetic.


Also, a mood board is an effective visual communication tool that can help you express your design vision to others. Our experienced designers love seeing our client's mood boards; they feel they can really connect with the client on their vision which allows them to create the best possible design for their dream kitchen.


What is a kitchen mood board?


A mood board is a visual tool that helps you communicate your design concepts and ideas. It's a curated collection of images, materials, colour palettes, text, and other elements arranged to display a particular aesthetic or feeling.


You could start with an idea from a picture you've found in a magazine, a colour you've always loved, or a kitchen accessory you already had. If you have so many ideas that you're unsure what to choose, creating a mood board can help you identify patterns in your preferences, pinpointing your style and allowing you to move forward with your kitchen design.

How do you create a mood board?


The first step when creating mood boards is to gather inspiration. This could be magazine clippings, pictures of kitchens you love, colour swatches, kitchen accessories or textures, anything that inspires you and reflects your style!


Once you've gathered your inspiration, you'll need to choose how to create your mood board; you could keep everything physical and arrange it all together on a piece of card or a note board, or, there are plenty of digital ways you can create your mood board, a popular method is on Pinterest, you can create a board and simply add your inspiration to it!


We upload to our Pinterest account several times a week, constantly putting new inspiration and business updates on there to help inspire everyone; why don't you head over to our page and start adding some inspiration to your digital mood board!?


Colour is an essential aspect of your mood board; it is one of the main focal points in your kitchen and will set the overall aesthetic of your space. You don't have to decide on one colour immediately; We suggest picking a range of colours you like, and our designers will help you narrow your selection! They will help you decide on the primary colour for your cabinetry, and then they will suggest any complimenting colours you can include via your wokrtop and any accessories.
